My business plan is simple...take my experiences from working with start-ups, from their creation to successful growth with little marketing budget, and assist small business owners with their marketing strategies and campaigns at reasonable outsourced pricing.

I'm a spunky southern red-head (aka "MJ" or "Red") who grew up in a musical family of eight in Dallas, TX. I moved to the Boston area in the late 80's and have lived in Westford, MA for 25 years! Although I am always wearing my marketing hat, music has always been the center of my life. I experience joy when I help connect people with good musical experiences. The power of music brings people together! I continue to stay involved with many music projects, including role of Co-Director of the non-profit organization Chick Singer Night Boston, being a lead vocalist for the Jazz Punishers and Groove Syndicate bands and continuing my love of harmonies by singing in church and being a backup vocalist for occasional tribute bands, including a Steely Dan Tribute band performance at Berklee College of Music.
